COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

Pale amber color, More hop character than I’d expect from a pilsner but very smoth and not the least bit bitter.

UXO (716) - CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours clear straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is grassy hops, grainy malt. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild to moderate bitter. (7/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp lightly bitter finish. (4/5) As pilsners go, a decent example of the style, albeit somewhat more highly hopped than is typical. Which is of course the reason I consider it a decent example. Crisp, refreshing, and quite drinkable. (14/20)

MichaelAwesome (5398) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2015
Ordentliches Pils mit einer wuerzigen Note. Angenehm trocken, etwas Hopfen, ein wenig Wuerze und ein recht trockener Schluss. Knackig. einfach, vollkommen ok.

BlackHaddock (4738) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
27th May 2015: on-tap at 101 Tap House, Oceanside. Decent Pilsner all round. Golden, clear and bright with a full white head. Crisp feel to the brew even if the aroma (like most Lager/Pilsners) was weak and thin. Mild malty lead over the hops in the flavouring: nothing spectacular or outstanding within the brew, just a very refreshing beer and really pleased I came across it while out in California.

Grassy, grainy and savory complimented with moderate bitterness, although it is more bitter than most pilsners. Thin body and lightly textured. Very dry, finishes quickly and cleanly. One of my summer go to favorites.

McTapps (5398) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2015
The beer has got a clear golden colour with an airy head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and citrus fruits. Taste of hops, malt, bread, citrus fruits and grass. Bitter-hoppy finish. Refreshing and solid.

12 oz. bottle. Pours golden and slightly cloudy. Has a compact, white, head that dissipates moderately. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is fairly bitter, which goes against what you would expect from the aroma. It is very hoppy with a medium body and slightly creamy texture. Carbonation is average. The finish is all hops. I’m not a big fan of super-hoppy beer and this one doesn’t impress me either. However, I do like the aroma and the texture of the beer. Would I buy this beer again? Probably not, considering how many other beers are out there that I like better. If a friend served these at a BBQ, would I drink one? Absolutely, as I can see how a cold one of these would hit the spot on a warm, sunny day.

Pyrmir (4005) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at O’Connors. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma sweet, malty, flowers, herbs, grass and earth. Taste is sweet, almost sticky, earthy, grassy hops with a sweet and slightly astringen finish. Too sweet, didn’t go well with me at all

An excellent craft pilsener from the east coast US. From a bottle, I was impressed by both the aroma and appearance of the beer, the former was a sweet fruity and clean grassy hop aroma, some pale malt, and the appearance was a clear yellow gold with an exceptionally frothy and long-lasting head. Taste was a moderate flavor intensity of noble hops with a more soft fruity and flowery than bitter resiny accent, along with solid pale malt. Finished with a slightly more bitter hop aftertaste. Light and smooth on the palate, not too filling. A well-executed pilsener rendition.

Mep3222 (802) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Malty aroma with slight lagerish funk. Taste is malty, but that almost rice like maltiness that pilsners have. Not badly crafted at all, but that is what pilsners taste like to me. This one is well made and a refreshing beer but I am just not hugely into the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent Pilsner. The aroma is classic Pilsner. The taste is grassy Pilsner with just the right amount of hops.
